BRAT Diet

Well my son has been having a bout of diarrhea for a week now. We took him to the doctor and she gave him a clean bill of health aside from the diarrhea and said to start feeding him Banana, Applesauce and rice cereal as those foods help harden his stools. So far it has lessened the episodes but he's still not completely over it yet.
I thought it was odd that applesauce would help. I thought it would make it worse but nope. Luckily my son is crazy about it and so is more than happy to have it.
Has anyone else used this method to help get their baby over a bout of diarrhea?
